DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58
The Biden Administration is secretly flying illegal immigrants into the Northeast
By Mike Huckabee
The New York Post reports that the Biden Administration has been secretly flying illegal immigrants, mostly children and teens but not all, from the Texas border to suburban New York under cover of darkness to settle them across the region. A Post analysis of online flight-tracking data indicates that about 2,000 illegal border crossers have been flown to an airport outside White Plains on 21 flights since August 8th.
When they land, usually between midnight and 4 a.m., they’re reportedly put on charter buses and taken to various locations from the Bronx to Connecticut.
The news was met with outrage from Republicans and some local residents, but the White House claims it’s nothing new: "It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor." That sidesteps the issue that it’s also their legal responsibility to enforce border security to prevent us having to deal with a tsunami of unaccompanied children, but here we are.
Witnesses say they’ve seen adult males get off those flights, and a spokeswoman for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said, "If the Biden Administration is so confident that their open-border policy is good for our country, why the secrecy? Why is the Biden Administration refusing to share even the most basic information about illegal alien resettlement in communities throughout our state and the entire country? Washington, DC, sets immigration policies that do not affect them, and states — that lack information about migrant resettlement and do not have the authority to change federal immigration policy — are expected to bear the brunt of Biden’s reckless open-borders agenda."
I can’t help wondering how gullible they think we are to say there’s nothing sneaky going on when they just got caught doing it in secret after midnight. It reminds me of comic Flip Wilson’s advice: “Midnight is a good time to be sneakin’. If anyone sees you, they’re sneakin’, too.”
The Post editors also have some choice things to say about why these flights are being conducted in secret: because having open borders and waving in illegal immigrants might be popular with “progressives,” but not with most Americans. So Biden’s people have to make sure most Americans never hear about it. Consider this article to be the sound of a blowing whistle.

China denies hypersonic missle report
By Mike Huckabee
China denied a report in the Financial Times that it tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August, claiming it was a “routine spacecraft experiment.”
Hypersonic missiles can fly great distances at such high speeds that it’s impossible to shoot one down. The US is engaged in a race with China and Russia to develop them, and Russia claims to have tested one. If there’s any truth to that, then we can give a great deal of the “credit” to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose family foundation raked in tens of millions of dollars from Russian sources tied to Putin’s push to transfer Western technology to Russia to create things like hypersonic missiles.
This was at a time when her campaign was paying for the creation of phony evidence that Trump was “colluding with Russia.”
Whatever China launched, and I don’t believe anything they say about it, it “caught US intelligence by surprise.” I’m not surprised that our “intelligence” agencies were surprised. Maybe if they spent half as much time monitoring the weapons programs of China and Russia as they do monitoring social media posts by Trump voters, they wouldn’t be surprised when China fires something into the sky.
AOC challenger emerges
By Mike Huckabee
It may seem like an impossible dream, but AOC has a challenger in New York’s 14th House District who might actually have a chance to boot the media’s favorite socialist fashionista out of Congress.
Like AOC, this person is Hispanic and even a former bartender – but that’s where the similarities end. Desi Cuellar’s parents fled Cuba to escape the socialism that AOC is so enamored with. He knows what it’s like to be poor, work hard and even be homeless, but he refuses to blame America for his early struggles or play victim. He even joined the National Guard because, he says, he “wanted to do more for my country.”
Cuellar said, “I am proof that opportunity exists for anyone in this country, that America is worth fighting for, that our values and our constitutional rights set us apart from the rest of the world. But my opponent AOC is doing everything she can to undo what countless Americans have died to preserve.”
He says, “As a New Yorker, I’m sick and tired of seeing AOC use our city as a launching pad for her socialist agenda.” He’s made a hard-hitting ad that can be seen at the link above. I wish him all the luck in the world.
It might seem like an insurmountable task, since AOC got 71% of the vote in 2020. But note that the 14th District has a population of nearly 700,000, and AOC’s total vote was less than 153,000. There are a lot of people there who didn’t bother to vote. Let’s hope Cuellar can inspire them to go to the polls and remind them that they elect someone to Congress to represent their beliefs and interests, not those of Bernie Sanders, Karl Marx or Fidel Castro.
Yet another Trump policy Biden has reversed
By Mike Huckabee
Trump’s Homeland Security and Defense Departments refused to do business with the Chinese drone manufacturer Da Jiang Innovations because it was believed to be closely tied to China’s communist government and a security threat. Biden just purchased eight drones from DJI three days after the Defense Department reaffirmed its belief that the systems they produce pose a threat to national security.
Just a guess, but their headquarters building wouldn’t happen to have a big painting by Hunter Biden hanging in the lobby, would it?...
Dan Bongino stands up to employer vaccine mandates
By Mike Huckabee
Listen to a radio station owned by Cumulus Broadcasting and you’ll likely hear an on-air announcement asking job-hunters to submit resumes and job applications. “We have a blast here,” the announcer says. He also mentions that applicants “must be fully vaccinated.” That’s right –- even to APPLY for a job at a Cumulus station, one must be fully vaccinated. Don’t even bother if you’re not. Current employees were required to be fully vaccinated as of October 11.
According to CEO Mary Berner, the only exceptions are those who permanently work from remote locations or those “with legal exceptions.” Her memo to staffers said that “we believe that Force Cumulus is at our best when we’re working together in offices. To do that as safely as we reasonably can, we’re requiring that everyone be vaccinated except those legally excepted. It would neither be fair nor do we have the bandwidth to make exceptions based on personal preferences.”
Already, some Cumulus employees, including several on-air hosts, are gone after refusing the vaccine. As INSIDE RADIO reports, Tron Simpson, a weekend host at “NewsRadio 740” KVON and KKFM 98.1 in Colorado Springs, is out. “As of this moment,” he said on-air, “I will no longer be hosting a talk show on KVOR, nor announcing on KKFM, as I have been terminated due to my refusal because of doctor’s orders to receive the Chinese COVID-19 injections.”
That’s right --- even doctor’s orders make no difference to the suits. The airshift right before Simpson’s is also available, as host Jeff Crank quit rather than be vaccinated. Others were denied either religious or medical exemptions by Cumulus Media corporate.
Dan Bongino’s radio show is syndicated by Cumulus-owned company Westwood One. (They also syndicate Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro and Chris Plante.) Bongino is vaccinated, though he had to think long and hard about that because of cancer treatments he was undergoing –- his doctor recommended going ahead –- but he’s decided he’ll part ways with Cumulus if they enforce this mandate. “You can have me, or you can have a vaccine mandate, but you can’t have both, he said Monday on “The Dan Bongino Show.”
He said, “If the company is going to make political decisions –- and I believe this was a political decision; I don’t believe this is based in any science; I could argue it all day –- they should at least recognize that the company makes a lot of money from people who have the opposite political persuasion.”
Speaking in support of those being given an ultimatum, he said, “I have no intentions of letting these guys get let go, get harassed, because they made a private and personal medical decision on only one of the biggest issues of our time.”
He said that in our constitutional republic, people have the right to make their own medical decisions and should be able to take into account, for example, natural immunity, which is a real thing. “There is an even ‘realer’ thing called freedom and liberty,” he said.
“Have these companies ever thought of the countless numbers of moms and dads, sitting at some kitchen table trying to explain to their kids how they have to move out because Daddy doesn’t have a job because a bunch of people in the C-suite thought it would be a good idea to play ‘Pretend Dr. Fauci’ for a minute?”
Bongino clarified that he doesn’t work FOR Cumulus or anyone else but instead has “a partnership” with them. “Cumulus is going to have to make a decision with me if they want to continue this partnership or they don’t,” he said. “But I’m talking to you on their airwaves. They don’t have to let that happen. You have a choice. I work with you. I do not work for you; I never will. You may have other people in a corner, but you don’t have me.”
Of course, Bongino also has a relationship with FOX NEWS, with his Saturday evening TV show UNFILTERED and a live-streamed radio show on FOX NATION. (Full disclosure: I also have a past relationship with Cumulus, as they syndicated my radio show.) The FOX NEWS policy, though stringent, is different, however, in that it’s at least possible to avoid vaccination by testing daily for COVID-19. Like Bongino, I am vaccinated but believe this is a personal decision to be made with the advice of one’s doctor, not the order of one’s boss.
Over at ESPN, sideline reporter Allison Williams is leaving her job after 10 years rather than be vaccinated. She says her doctors, including a fertility specialist, advised her not to get the vaccine since she and her husband are trying to conceive their second child. Apparently, ESPN doesn’t allow medical exceptions, either. What is it with corporate executives trying to play doctor?
ESPN, which is owned by Disney, announced in July that they'd be mandating the vaccine for “most employees.” Previously, they'd said it would be considered a personal decision, but, in Williams’ words, “Their values have clearly changed.”
“I understand that,” she continued. “I don’t know what it’s like to run a multibillion-dollar company and to have shareholders and board members and financial quotas to answer to, and not to mention societal and political pressure, so I respect that their values have changed. I had hoped that they would respect that mine had not.”
As reported at THE FEDERALIST, she said through her tears that she hoped anyone else facing “medical coercion from their employers and the government” would stand up for what they believe and fight back against tyranny.” She doesn’t know what’s next for her or her career but said she looks forward to returning to the job that she loves with "the ESPN family.” She clings to her faith and hopes things will get better.
“Until then,” she said, I’m going to go hug my baby.”
Country star Travis Tritt has had enough of this, and announced Monday that he won’t be playing at venues that require COVID vaccinations or face masks as a condition of attending.
But the tyrannical vaccine decisions keep coming, this one by a judge who refused to let a dad see his 3-year-old daughter unless he gets vaccinated or submits to weekly COVID tests. The dad has already had COVID and, according to his lawyer, had a bad reaction to another vaccine.
Some judges like to play doctor, too. And this one sees a person who doesn’t want to be vaccinated as someone who is “seizing upon misinformation, conspiracy theories, and muddled notions of ‘individual liberty.’” If anyone has a muddled notion of individual liberty, it’s this judge.
To God Be The Glory
To Listen: https://youtu.be/2CeBoSQsBR0
To God be the glory, great things He hath done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.
